Very slow and uninteresting lead up to climax which never really came. Boring and not what was expected from an Eastwood directed film.


The Press Reviews

  • Although the terrorist attack is effectively staged, The 15:17 To Paris fails to spin a remarkable film out of a remarkable act of heroism. Full Review

  • Eastwood terrorist thriller casts three American heroes to play themselves. They had never acted before and as far as I'm concerned their record is clean, leaving the gripping, complex movie that might have been frustratingly out of reach. Full Review

  • A single act of heroism can truly transform a life, but that action does not necessarily make for a transformative motion picture. Full Review

  • A strangely boring, dramatically inert film in which the main characters remain as opaque and unreadable as sphinxes to the very last. Full Review

  • The profanity-free squareness is close to excruciating: You won't believe how boring it is partying with real-life heroes. Full Review

  • Mostly comprised of banal, drama-free, quotidian scenes that merely reinforce the men's status as regular Joes who, one day, had the opportunity for greatness thrust upon them. Full Review

  • The film keeps telling us that what happened aboard that train was the fulfillment of something, but neither the event nor the three actors re-enacting it seem completely real. They seem like pieces of reality trapped in a movie. Full Review

  • A certain blunt power is guaranteed by the facts of the story, and Mr. Eastwood doesn't obviously try for anything more than that. But his workmanlike absorption in the task at hand is precisely what makes this movie fascinating as well as moving. Full Review
